Crann Centre welcomes the community

Supporting those affected by Spina bifida, hydrocephalus and neuromuscular conditions, Crann Centre, at their new state of the art centre in Classis, Ballincollig, hosted a community day last weekend. The Kingdom Wheelblasters, the Rebel Wheelers, UCC, Ballincollig Scouts, Wildwork and Tyndall National Institute are just some of the organisations that attended, and enjoyed the exhibits, performances and discussions around health and wellbeing, employment, early childhood, education and community involvement. “Opening our doors to the community in Cork is vitally important for the Crann Centre here in Ballincollig,” said James Thornberry, CEO, “We have developed an incredible centre for people of every age with disabilities, and their families, and we are keen for the community to understand and see how we work together to improve the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of those who are engaged with us.” The Crann Centre was established in Cork in 2016, and is supported by philanthropic funding and the American Fund for Charities. Crann is an inclusive partnership project that provides care and services focused on strengthening all members of the family, as well as individual needs for those affected by disability in the Cork region.
